A child that can identify letters and understand the sounds they make is ready to start making their own words. Sounding and blending is where the fun begins.

Good game

Excellent for both my 3 and 5 year old in different ways. However the plastic at the end of the lace isn’t long enough so you can’t thread the ‘round letters’ b, d, p etc

Ros Haynes
Perfect for my Boys

Big fan of busybots and my two boys (age 5 & 7) love to do these. My 7 year old has SEND needs and he loves these and my 5 year old finds them fun - the bold and bright pictures are a hit and they are learning without it being "boring schoolwork." I home homeschooling hit

For my boys

Not seen products as were sent directly to my son's house for my gandsons to use during lockdown/ school holidays
As far as I know they have found them very useful .
Any chance of a future discount as I have bought 6 packs for them now ?

Fix sat on the mat

Bought this for our 4 year old grandson, he loves it and his Mummy was very impressed with it. Easy to take out with them in its bag. Will order more things from you definitely


Such a clever, compact and fun product!
Bought this to practising sounds and blending with my 4 year old, he loves it and finds it fun! I really like the fact you can thread the letters which is great for fine motor skills. Overall very happy and great that it all packs away into one little bag.
Highly recommend
